Life Under the Sun

“Life Under the Sun” – Jesus said to love Him and our neighbor. But how do we love and care for those around us? Do we know what life is like for them? The book of Ecclesiastes gives us deep insight into contemporary despair. Looking for answers “under the sun” leads to a meaningless maze of work, expectation and uncertainty. When an opportunity arises, are you ready to point to One “above” the sun who offers life as a gift?
